Thursday Thoughts – Travel theme: Adventure

Ailsa, you once invited me to participate in your Travel theme – and I have, almost every week, for several years. Your theme will be greatly missed, but I hope we will keep You!

My interpretation became a long one…almost every picture will have an explanation as to why they represent Adventure. Not that I think the explanation is needed – but still.

Thank you for all these years of hosting! Life is the greatest Adventure.

 

Travel theme: Love

Travel theme: Love

What is Love?

Well, there are so many ways of showing it…

…and we all want it…

…mmm, and sometimes it is so obviously shining and true!

I guess the one thing in common is – we ALL need it!

Travel theme: Warm

Travel theme: Warm

Spot on, Ailsa. Warm is the theme for this week. Up north we are very tired of all the grey: rain, drizzle, slush – and darkness. Now it is dark around 3.30 pm. I hope your theme will get much light and warmth from us all!

Mmmm…

In the header, Madeira, branches from fallen trees.

Winter is coming…

Artificial branches – but still…And lastly, Tibast, the first one to bring flowers in spring.

For Ailsa this week: Bram Stoker in Whitby and The Kingston Flyer in New Zealand – lovely memories both.

 

Travel theme: Steps

Travel theme: Steps

Steps and stairs always speak to you, don’t they. The material is of course important, and the age. As often for me, I love the old ones best. Worn down, used for hundreds or even thousands of years.

Ostia Antica, Italy. A theatre, yes, but you also have to walk the steps to get to your seat. And in the header, old steps leading to a house in the abandoned village Castro in western Spain.

Somehow I see the theater’s steps as going down – while in Castro the steps are leading upwards.

Travel theme: Sugar

Travel theme: Sugar

Sugar…we eat too much sugar, they say. But looking at it/them feels rather safe! Or…?

In the header ”sugar buns” – as they are called in Sweden.

At Hamleys in London – sugar, sugar, sugar…
